Hi surfnets,

I don't quite know what you mean by a "white line". Is
it really thin and not part of the display ? Is it a
horozontal line ?

Often, if you are near a flourescent light, you'll get
that annoying line. If so, just move it away from
your monitor.

As to the upgrade, by all means, just make sure that
it's the exact drivers you need. Double-check before
you install. Hope that helps.

Hi dogbonz,
Yes
yes
yes

I've 3D Blaster Anihilator 2 and Sound blaster live value. I upgrade the sound blaster live value last week but I still see the thin horozontal line on the screen. I upgraded the 3D Blaster Anihilator 2 and there's no line on the screen anymore but I saw ViewSonic A75s monitor has only 16 color. How do I fix?
Thanks,

Usually, a "thin horizontal line" is caused by interference.

However, I had a beautiful SONY monitor that kept
the tiny white line no matter what. I lived with it.

Sometimes you can change the refresh settings, look in
the settings tab, after you right-click on the desktop.

As for the colors, they can be set at the same place. Try
goint to 32 color - it might help.

Right-click anywhere on the desktop. Click "properties"
Choose the Settings tab. Color and pixel size are there.
Go to advanced and try different refresh rates.

Not sure that I understand your last post. What is the make and model of your monitor?

It might say on the back of the monitor, in device manager or desktop properties/settings/advanced (although sometimes it just says "plug and play"). This is only important if you have a Triniton type monitor that uses an aperture grill arrangement. These will have a couple of horizontal lines accross the monitor screen, although I have to admit they usually don't look white so you may be talking about something else.
